Touch it on. Touch it off. Whether you have two full hands or 10 messy fingers, Delta® Touch2O® Technology helps keep your faucet clean, even when your hands aren’t. A simple touch anywhere on the spout or handle with your wrist or forearm activates the flow of water at the temperature where your handle is set. The Delta TempSense™ LED light changes color to alert you to the water’s temperature and eliminate any possible surprises or discomfort. Delta® MagnaTite® Docking uses a powerful integrated magnet to pull your faucet spray wand precisely into place and hold it there so it stays docked when not in use. Delta® ShieldSpray® Technology cleans with laser-like precision while containing mess and splatter. A concentrated jet powers away stubborn messes while an innovative shield of water contains splatter and clears off the mess, so you can spend less time soaking, scrubbing and shirt swapping. Delta® faucets with DIAMOND™ Seal Technology perform like new for life with a patented design which reduces leak points, is less hassle to install and lasts twice as long as the industry standard*.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Touch Faucet Bought faucet a month ago. Spent a bit more to get the touch on/off feature. It has work off and on over the first few weeks then I had to resort to disconnecting the batteries and reconnecting to get it to work. Now we just use the lever the touch feature has died. Tried contacting service but couldn't get anyone to pick up. So I sent emails still wait for a response to them.................... been weeks. Should have bought a Moen

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful faucet, great idea, flawed product. I loved this faucet when we first got it. It was exactly what I was looking for in the kitchen, no more germ covered hands on the faucet and it was working great for the first two months. Then it started shutting off randomly. We replaced the batteries as needed and even with brand new batteries we are still having the issues. Turn the faucet on and it shuts right off. In the middle of washing a dish and the hot water shuts off. Washing your hands and the water turns off. VERY frustrating. Getting ready to disconnect the touch feature and just use it as a normal faucet...a very pricey normal faucet!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this faucet! We love this faucet! Didnt take long to get used to the convenience of the "touch" feature. Never have to turn the water on with messy hands, just touch faucet with your wrist or back of you hand. However, after being in our new house for less than a year, the touch feature stopped working out of nowhere;the solinoid had to be replaced. I spoke with Delta customer service and was sent the replacement part within a few days. Very easy fix, but and worried how long this one will last.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flaky features I really wanted to love this faucet, but it's had a lot of trouble. It looks great and the water pressure and touch-function is fine. It does seem to burn through batteries quickly, but I can live with that. I had it professionally installed, but after a few months the LED stopped working when the water was cold. Then a few weeks later it stopped when it was hot. I talked to Delta and we tried to troubleshoot it, but ultimately Delta replaced the solenoid. That unfortunately meant completely uninstalling the faucet, which I paid a plumber to do...again. A few months later the LED stopped working for cold water again. I decided to ignore it since it still warns when it's hot. But now the faucet takes forever to change temperature. I'll push the lever from cold to hot, and then need to pull it back and press it to hot a few times to get the temperature to change.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from One serious flaw This faucet was part of a total kitchen remodel. Almost immediately the water flow rate fell off to a near trickle. Cleaning the head restored the flow rate but it again quickly slowed to a trickle. Now we have to remove it and clean it twice a week or more. I know it's the head because we can remove it and get great flow from just the hose. Very disappointed Delta. I can get a Moan that won't clog up for a fraction of the price. And YES! The house has a whole house filtration system.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love my new faucet with longer reach I was looking for a faucet a little longer to save my back from leaning forward at my farm house sink. I love that it is touch activated but it is a little sensitive and sometimes it turns off by mistake. The only thing I would change is water pressure is much softer than my old one.

third question is related to LED light. It has never changed temps. It is always red?? Thanks for your help

Asked by: Joe P
Hi, Joe P! Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing an issue with your Delta faucet. We recommend to reset the LED light wire and battery pack. To do this, disconnect the LED light wire from the solenoid. Disconnect the battery pack. Wait a full minute. While you are waiting a full minute, you can check batteries and see if they are in good condition, even try new batteries. Make sure they're all in the correct direction and tightly secured in the battery pack. After a full minute, reconnect the LED light wire into the solenoid and then reconnect the battery pack. Wait another full minute. After the full minute, you can then check your faucet and see if the blue light works better. If this does not, please contact our Delta Customer Service line at (800)345-3358. We are available Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm, CST and Saturday, 8am-5pm, CST. You may also email at customerservice@deltafaucet.com. Best Regards, Rosanna

second issue with our 9178T-DST - it seems to be loose at the base. How do we tighten it without damaging the device. It was professionally installed about six months ago.

Asked by: Joe P
Hi, Joe P! Thank you for your question, and I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing a loosened faucet base. We do recommend to tighten the mounting nut with the provided wrench. If you're needing a new wrench or a wrench and nut, we recommend to order RP92714. Best Regards, Rosanna

Model 9178T-DST. I do not get enough water pressure on my kitchen faucet as it was before. Is any part that I should change or has to be clean inside some where taking it apart? Hope that someone can help me with this issue.

Asked by: Rick
Hello Rick, Thank you for your question. We would recommend flushing the supply lines of your faucet. To flush out the valve body, so that these parts do last as long as possible, please first turn off the water supply to the faucet. Gather an adjustable wrench, some towels and a bucket. Disconnect the hot side Innoflex line. Move the handle to the full on position, middle temp. Point the hot side Innoflex line into a bucket. Turn on the cold supply valve full. Let a gallon or two flow into the bucket. Shut off cold supply. Check bucket for debris. If no debris, empty bucket and run one more time. Move handle to off position. Reattach hot side line. Turn on both water supply valves. Please feel free to call, email, or message us on social if there is anything else you need.

My faucet has auto shutoff after 4 minutes so how do I set to leave the faucet dripping when it gets cold to keep water from freezing

Asked by: Gina52
Hi Gina52, Thank you for your question. We would recommend putting the Delta Leland Pull-Down Kitchen 9178T-DST faucet easily into the manual mode, by removing the lid of the battery box while the faucet is running. This will allow you to run water from the faucet, without the 4 minute shut off feature. For putting the faucet in manual mode permanently, please refer to page 17 of the maintenance and installation manual for your model. https://media.deltafaucet.com/MandI/92834%20Rev%20F.pdf Best regards, Tanya
